My son Jericho is nearly 9 weeks old. I have no idea where the time has gone; its passed too quickly. I can no longer remember a time without Jericho; my life before motherhood seems like a dream from another life and surprisingly I'm blissful that my "old life" has become the past.
I've started this blog as since Jericho's birth I've realized how little support there is for new mothers and how quick to judge everyone is. Its difficult to spend so much time with a little person who doesn't understand your feelings and emotions and then look around and realize there are no adults that do either. I'm hoping that as I break down the walls with my son Jericho and learn more and more how to be his mother and break through the walls of communication, learning and love with him that maybe my reflections will help other mothers. We need more connection, more women reaching out in love to hear the stories of other families and feel supported, offer support and journey....perhaps even stumble through motherhood together.
"Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other mothers felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a mothers heart bared,beating forever outside its chest." ~ Debra Ginsberg
Here's to travelling together.
